Katrina Plam has recently completed her MFA in Creative Writing at Antioch University in Los Angeles. She currently resides in Sonoma, Ca busily scribing a memoirish novel while working for a boutique winery in the Napa Valley. She’s into: yoga, indie music, books & museums, tee-shirt slogan-writing, raw food cuisine, lifting heavy things, lip gloss and my laptop, tequila and salty bites, depressive lyrics embedded in uplifting beats, fine wine in coffee mugs, afternoon naps and bed picnics, marshmallow roasting, cinema, spa days and getting muddy, novel writing, collaging, intentionally bad photography, blogging, soy lattes with nutmeg, watermelon, soul-dancing, hikes, discovering delish wines, ocean-gazing and pondering what’s really in the deep abyss, tree frogs and faeries, pedicures and champagne brunches, solitude, meditation, companionship and shared laughter, opera, pickles, snow leopards, skipping for no reason whatsoever.
Part One: The Tasting Room This three part series will explore wine tasting etiquette from the tasting room to the barrel room to the living room. Don’t be that guy who asks if they can drink the contents of the dump bucket or makes inappropriate jokes about the bung hole. Taste like a pro and be proud of it. You don’t have to be the sommelier of The French Laundry to taste like the experts. Learn your way around a wine glass in three easy steps: stop, drop and roll.
